Planning your next weekend in Yorkshire?  Leeds has a host of unmissable pubs that are legendary for their friendly staff, craft ale selections and charm.  These are our favourites:

1. The Bridge Inn, Kirkstall

Refurbished in 2013 this old stone pub is located on the edge of the River Aire and sits at the edge of Kirkstall - ten minutes outside of Leeds City Centre.  It boasts a huge beer garden with plenty of seating, plus an excellent all day food menu.

 2. Whitelock’s Ale House, City Centre

The building of this pub dates from 1715, and it still boasts a stunning copper topped bar and wooden beams across the dining room.  Their fish & chips is not to be missed and there’s a wide selection of craft beers from all around Yorkshire: it’s the perfect place to end a day trip to Leeds.

3. The Adelphi, City Centre

A former hotel on the edge of the city centre The Adelphi should be your number one destination for pub food in Leeds.  Three local and three guest ales rotate every week, and there’s always quizzes, glorious roasts and the beer garden to enjoy.

4. Alfred’s, Meanwood

Set in the leafy suburb of Meanwood, Alfred’s is the sister pub to North Bar in the city centre - both share an unmissable selection of local beers and a wide selection of wines.  

5. The Brownlee Arms, Horsforth

A contemporary yet welcoming pub on the edge of Horsforth it is named after the olympian Brownlee brothers.  With local cask ales, fine wines, and fresh homemade food it is great place for a quiet afternoon drink or a family get together.
